Mr Prasad said - "first of all congratulations for making it to the Pre - Olympic Qualifying tournament in Madrid, it is an awesome feat!
For a sport that is eclipsed by the major sports such as Rugby Union, and Soccer or Netball when it comes to the allocation of resources, this is remarkable national triumph.
Once that I hope, the media gives it the credit it deserves.
Despite all the obstacles, the Fiji Women's Basketball Team has shown immense guts and determination to reach the level they have.
We acknowledge your commitment to the sport and I am sure when history is revisited, you will recognised as the pioneers who struggled against all odds to build the profile of the sport and still achieve a significant milestone.
We at Vodafone are more than happy to assist teams aspiring to be the best in their own turf and on this occasion for Women's Basketball Team competing with best from around the world.
We hope our contribution will assist the team and provide the motivation and inspiration in your quest to represent Fiji at the Olympics later in the year.
With these few words, I have much pleasure in presenting you with your official sports outfits for the event in Madrid.
AS WE SAY AT VODAFONE....MAKE THE MOST OF NOW
WE SAY TO YOU....MAKE THE MOST OF THE OPPORTUNITY
THANK YOU, VINAKA VAKALEVU AND ALL THE BEST FROM THE VODAFONE FAMILY"
